I believe that there is a being who created the universe, including mankind. This being is incredibly powerful and rules over his creation to this day. Despite of it's power and knowledge this higher being, who is God, wants to have contact with us humans. God is a person with feelings just like us and he wants a personal relationship with every single human.
A large amount of angels serves God. But one of them turned against him and became his enemy. Other angels followed this traitor. He is the opposite of God and is called Satan. In him is complete evil and hatred. Satan wants to destroy Gods creation, humans above all. His plan is to make man turn away from God.
When God had created the world he lived together with man in peace and harmony. But God had given man a free will and the humans choose to listen to Satan and rebel against God. To turn away from God is called to sin. It means to miss the goal, i.e. the wonderful future which God had planned for us.
Since man rebelled against God, they were banished from the beautiful place that he had created for them and they could no longer live with God. But for those who wanted to obey God he gave the possibility to show this by sacrificing their cattle to him. In that way they secured a future together with God again. Only a few choose to do so though.
But God still loved man and didn't want her to be lost so he sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to earth so that he could be sacrificed to take away our sins, which separates us from God. Jesus died on a cross, defeated death and rose again on the third day. This happened about 2000 years ago.
Thanks to what Jesus did it is possible for anyone to have a personal relationship with the only living God again, through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to accept Jesus Christ as lord of your life. Jesus wants to be your friend, who listens to you and cares about you.
God has inspired some people to write some texts which has been put together in a book which is called the Bible. God gave us this book of books so that we could find guidance and learn to know him better. In the Bible you can read about how God have worked on earth and about when Jesus Christ lived here.
But we can learn about God in other ways too. We can talk directly with him, for example. He always listens and answers in a variety of ways. Not always as we thought but he knows what's best for us.
I'm a member of a church in Sweden. It's a strength to be together with other people who also lives with Christ. In that way you can help each other to understand God and get to know him better.
